KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is to commence a Harare service on 29 October 2012. The Zimbabwean capital will be served in combination with the new KLM destination Lusaka (Zambia).
“KLM sees great growth opportunities in Africa. This year we launched service to Luanda in Angola and Lusaka in Zambia, and in 2011 we began serving Kigali in Rwanda. This new addition to our network strengthens our position in Africa”, said Erik Varwijk, KLM's Managing Director and Executive Vice President of Air France KLM International & The Netherlands.
KLM will operate two-class A330 services from Schiphol to what was once known as Salisbury. Harare will be served in combination with Lusaka. The airline will also offer 11 weekly services to Harare via Nairobi in co-operation with Kenya Airways, a fellow member of the SkyTeam Alliance.
KLM flies to Amsterdam from 16 departure points in the UK which offer onward connections to Harare. www.klm.com
